Buoyant creativity and sensitivity to detail raises this “country” collection to Art. As a colorful, sometimes saucy expression of the eclecticism of Brazil’s culture, each piece is a masterful confluence of elements from various periods and styles. Our artisans have transformed its simple Hacienda lines into a fertile canvas for imaginative embellishments, such as scalloped edges, turned legs, and hand forged hardware. As the finishing touch, the pieces are polychromatically hand painted in tropical motifs of flowers, fruits, and rural scenes. We call it whimsical; its owners call it delightful.
Inspired by wealthy colonial towns from the “gold rush” era, the Colonial collection mixes well with Rosewood and Mission.
DYK? The Portuguese explorer Cabral made landfall in Brazil in 1500 and claimed it for the crown; Brazil remained a colony of Portugal for 300 years.
